Affordable Fall Fashion
Do you love fall fashion as much as I do?? It’s so great for so many reasons. You get a lot more layers. You don’t have to worry about showing too much skin. You are allowed to remove all coats, sweaters and boots from the closet. But what’s even better… find a luxurious looking outfit for less money. Oh, I like a bargain. One of my old superpowers is finding the hidden fashion treasures in outlet, consignment and thrift stores. It is a gift that arose out of necessity. I was a fashion-loving child, born into a poor family. That skill and passion has stayed with me all these years. And you? Do you love sales? Or are you a “pay-full-price-and-no-blink” type of girl? I think I’m actually both.
Anyway, I wanted to share a very chic, yet wearable and versatile fall outfit that is also very affordable. This look is just for you, my deal lovers! Keep scrolling for the scoop…
The perfect fall outfit
Before we get into the specific pieces of this look, why they’re great and how much they cost… I wanted to reiterate the importance of having a perfect fall outfit, which I often refer to as your “style uniform.” Your ideal casual look should consist of three basic pieces…1) a chic, versatile blouse, 2) a pair of flattering jeans and 3) comfortable and cute shoes. (Depending on your climate, you may want to modify your shoes and add a third layer.) Remember to choose silhouettes based on your body shape, lifestyle and comfort level.
TOP | JEANS | HEELS | FOR LESS | SUNGLASSES | BRACELET | NECKLACE | bralette
Okay, let’s start by talking about this super cool black WAYF top. It’s SO unique. I’ve never seen anything like it (and that’s saying something based on my 13+ years of professional shopping!) This is a blouse that looks more like a blazer. I know. Is your mind blown up? Note the high waist detail that highlights the smallest part of most women’s bodies just below the bust. The drape of this top also hides a tummy if that’s important to you. The blouse is open at the bottom, but you can wear a cami or tank underneath for more coverage. Other notable details: 1) it’s lightweight, so you can wear it on those days when it’s still piping hot, 2) it’s a universally flattering length, and 3) the price…it’s ONLY $69! (Runs true to size.) By the way, it comes in three other colors which you can see below. I love the espresso too!
Crop / Bra Top
Short note: the crop top I’m wearing underneath is from Spiritual Gangster. I’ve worn it as a bra and cropped cami combo and I really love it! I’ve actually stopped wearing bras altogether because I’m just tired of them. Someone else? 😉 Goodbye bras. I am sure I will wear them again. Maybe I’m just rebelling now. Anyway, it feels good to be free!
Next, you need the perfect jeans to create the perfect fall outfit! You can go with any style of jeans now, as all shapes and washes are “in”, but I personally like the look of a wider, more relaxed leg. And these are under $100!! Considering the quality and fit… these jeans are a bargain! If you’re on a budget and need to fill your wardrobe staple checklist, grab these before they’re gone! I would recommend going down a size as they run large and are quite stretchy. These are also VERY comfortable and would work beautifully for flights or road trips.
I took these pictures from our terrace in the new house. It is impossible to fully capture the magnificence of our amazing view. It’s my favorite thing about living here!
Depending on where you live, you may want to wear a pair of booties with your fall outfit. But since it’s still quite warm in Colorado, I opted for a pair of L’Agence open-toe mules. These heels are the only piece in this look that costs over $100, but they are SO good, I had to share! Love the python embossed leather and manageable 3 inch heel. I was also pleasantly surprised by how comfortable they are (for heels). The extra pointy toes give them a unique and elevated look.
#4) Bonus – Accessories!
A chic autumn outfit is not complete without accessories! Open Edit has some really cool jewelry that is durable, chic and VERY affordable. The necklace I am wearing is white on one side and gold on the other. It’s a cool, impactful necklace that you can wear with any outfit to add some spice. The bracelet is super versatile and has mixed metals (both gold and silver) so you don’t have to worry about what hardware you have on your bag, shoes or third layer. It’s a great everyday piece! Getting in and out is also easy.
